Functional materials represent a fast growing set of advanced materials and composites, some properties of which (shape, electrical conductivity, mechanical properties, color etc.) are responsive to external stimuli (thermal, electrical, mechanical, light etc.). These can include, for example, ferroelectricity, thermoelectricity, piezoelectricity, magnetism, energy storage functions, magneto and electrostrictive materials for sensors and actuators, phase transforming materials, shape memory alloys or modern functional coatings and films. Functional materials are found in all classes of materials - ceramics, metals, polymers and organic molecules.
